Nikhil, will have to confirm that with the father-in-law. He was rather upset (because he wanted the upsize for safety as well as looks), and thus mentioned only the rate and not the brand offered at his Kolkata tyre shop.

I assume it's either the A Drives, BS ER60s or the Michelin XM1+ but will certainly confirm tomorrow.

It's too cheap to be the Michelins unless there's a huge price difference between here and there.

I assume it's either the BS or the Yokos.

A drive R1 is not available for 14". It is available only for 16" and above. So, your choice is limited to the A Drive.

Hi Guys, I hope this is not totally

My dad's booked a Ritz Zxi which already comes with the 185/70 14 tyres and alloy wheels.

I am fine with the tyre specs but just wanted some opinions on whether it makes sense to upgrade to Michelins or Yoko from the stock tyres (which are either JK or Bridgestone depending on the manufactured lot - as per the dealer)

Is there a tremendous improvement in ride quality and decrease in tyre/road noise if I use say Michelin XM1s or Yoko A drive

Do upgrade. There is quite a substantial difference between the OEM JKs and Michelin/Yokos.

Nikhil there was a thread saying the problem happened with yoko A drive...is it a lonely incident or should i go for Michelin which is costlier than yokos....i have to really brain wash my father for a upgrade so finally if yokos turn to be problamatic thn i will be screwed....

If u feel that is a lonely incident then i think i can go for Yoko A drives...if u are unlucky the same can happen to Micelins also...

Thanks Nikhil
Just to get an idea, can anyone tell me

How much should I expect for the stock JK 185/70 14 tyres?
What is the ballpark figure for Michelin XM1+?
What is the ballpark figure for Yoko A drive?

Thanks

Well, there is no guarantee that it wont happen with Michelin or Bridgestone. It is just your luck and also your way of driving on bad roads.

You should get around 1800 for your stock tyres. Being in Pune, maybe you can get more.

XM1+ is around 3650/-. A drive should be around 3150. These are BLR prices. Pune should be cheaper especially for Michelin.

Sorry, forgot to ask the most important question:
What is the recommended tyre upsize for Ritz Zxi with 185/70/14s?

Well, Darshan Tyres and N Mehta tyres are the two biggest dealers. Combined, they almost have a monopoly in the market! Give them a try.

Ok - thanks Nikhil. Any idea about the correct tyre size to go in for? Or is 185/70 R14 good enough?
